Go Heat!

This is a great venue and is very comfortable. I recommend going to see a Miami Heat basketball game for a great Miami experience. The food vendors are very varied and great too!

Not only does it cost an arm and a leg just to get out there to enjoy the experience of being at the Arena, but then I have to pay with my other arm just for parking. Once inside, let's not even go into how expensive the food is. I think in general, one can have a great experience at... More

We couldn't pay for expensive tickets, but it was a waste of time because the most inexpensive ones were in the roof!!! When I saw it on the internet I thought they should have a good view anyway, but nope. Prepare your binoculars if you can't afford a pricey ticket! I wouldn't go back if I can't buy a closer...

Since Miami rarely has a day that something isn't going on, a great place to be part of the energy and excitement that is Miami is at the American Airlines Arena. Whether cheering for the Miami Heat, which sports one of the most loyal fan bases in the NBA; catching the circus or grooving to a concert, American Airlines Arena... More

We stayed in Miami for one night before our cruise. It so happened that this show was on the evening we were there. We were excited to go as our hotel was within walking distance to the arena. Entering was well organized, friendly staff. Easy in and out. What more can one ask for :)
